    No problem, the washers are necessary if you have a temple board as the standoffs pass through the board.

    So i added external switches to my board to use as dedicated preset U/D and FX and to get back to scenes, i didn't have enough real estate to mount them but there not stepped on all that often so i built a riser its a little taller than id like but it still is comfortable and works.

    I used a piece of 6mm plexiglass and trimmed it down then mounted that w Dual Lock and then used the Temple Audio Plates. I really wanted to keep the sides on as I dig the look they have.

    Added some external switches to the FC-6

    Making use of the stand in switches I set these up to bank up and down through Presets and to get to my FX and back to my scenes more quickly. Need to figure a more permanent mounting system but I have something I'm looking at to take care of that.

    Partly because it does yes but I had the Dunlop Expression pedals and i find the EV1 just a little bit better feel wise, when I want to use a wha for my III I use the mission pedals the feel more,like a traditional wah, with the Ax8 I’ll just use a real wah like my JP

    I’ve never had a problem with flex, I believe that came from the older boards before they put the mounting bracket/ stiffener under the board. I’ve had this one for almost 4-5 years and never felt any flex on it at all.

    I run my wireless in to the rear input. And honestly if you look at some pro touring rigs using the Axe and wireless they run the rear input as well. In the end do what sounds best to you. I'm sure the minuscule difference will not be heard.
